LAKE CHARLES — A Baton Rouge company faces a lawsuit over a contract dispute.
NRC East Environmental Services (NRC) filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana against Stallion Oilfield Construction and Stallion Oilfield Services.
According to the complaint, Stallion failed to provide waste-hauling services from the Alcoa Corporation site in Lake Charles to disposal sites in other Louisiana cities.
As a result, NRC had to quickly hire another subcontractor "at a significantly higher price," the complaint states. NRC claims the breach of contract cost the company at least $310,000.
Stallion said it did not have the proper agreement, the complaint states.
“Stallion’s September 19, 2017 written bid did not say that its provision of waste-hauling services for the Alcoa projected depended on the availability of certain equipment or that the necessary equipment might not be available when Stallion was due to perform,” the complaint countered.
NRC is a Massachusetts-based environmental remediation company. It is represented by Craig Isenberg of the Barrasso, Usdin, Kupperman, Freeman & Sarver law firm in New Orleans.
